So SO many pictures…

So I had a blog post in process…

…and then my computer turned itself off.

I’m going to keep this short because it’s 8:30 and Waaay past my bedtime.

Seriously.

1. Chloe no longer drinks bottles. It happened overnight. Had I known our last one was our last one… I may have lingered in the moment a little longer.

However, she still enjoys a good cuddle before bedtime which is a-ok with me.

2. Chloe now likes a cuddle about an hour after she goes to bed for 5 minutes or so. We’ll see about that. It’s SO hard to say no when she just wants to sleep with her little face in the crook of your neck.

3. I’ve started nesting like it’s going out of style. I have the urge to purge. Ya know what I mean.  I spent an entire day last week cleaning out our downstairs closet.

I got rid of almost nothing.  I did, however, manage to rearrange our stuff.

Something tells me I’m not nesting the right way!

I also have the most ridiculous need to craft. I spent 4 out of the last 5 days pretending I knew what I was doing.

I may have pulled it off: IMG_8411_1_1

I made this bow for Chloe…

Chris’s reaction? It looks like a headlight.IMG_8440

True true.

But still oh-so-cute at the same time.

I’m pretty darn proud of myself.

I can not WAIT to put the girls in these shirts and embarrass the heck out of them.

In other news, Grandma and Grandpa Johnson drove down for Labor Day weekend…

That means that Lauren’s bedding is here!IMG_8383

This picture does NOT do it justice. It is so unbelievably soft and minky.

I am in love.

I am ready for Lauren to be sleeping PEACEFULLY in it :)

Chloe tested it out/put it to the test.

This is our classic afternoon nap baby.

See her dimples? AND wings??

You should see the back of her head!

Fancy a nice poke?

Be glad this isn’t YOUR face.

Because when you see her…

…It will be…

Doesn’t she look like an up-and-coming tennis star?

Too bad it’s not in her genes.

Besides, I’m not sure turtle tennis skirts are allowed in professional tennis.

Really…I could look at pictures of her all day.

For the record, she really loves a nice bracelet.

I think she may be a girlie girl after all!

This bracelet used to have 3 strands of beads.

You want to guess as to why it only has two now??

I’ll give you a hint.  Someone gave it too much ‘love’…

The end.

P.S. Do you spy any top teeth in this picture?!

They broke through!
